Computational Physics (Physics 477/577)

Spring 2017

APHY 577 Computational Methods
Meeting Times: MWF 09:20 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: PH0225
Number of credits: 3

This is a one semester Computational Physics course. Ideally, at the end of this course, the student will be able to devise an algorithm for a given problem, write and debug  the corresponding code, analyze the results and present them in a way that conveys the essential message that they contain.


Quantum Mechanics (Physics 547)

Fall 2017

APHY 547 Quantum Mechanics 1
Meeting Times: MW 10:00 AM -  11:20 AM
Location: PH0129
Number of credits: 3

This is the first semester of the graduate Quantum Mechanics course. The course covers fundamental concepts from the Stern-Gerlach and similar experiments to path integrals in Quantum Mechanics and semi-classical approximations. 


Teachers Workshops


Workshop 1:

Fall 2017

How computers are extending the reach of science:  Brief overview of general subject of Computational Science and Computational Physics followed by hands -on activity to develop a model and algorithm for a simulation of a predator-prey model. The workshop is open to all science teachers.


Introduction to Quantum Optics


Coming soon. An introduction to the interaction of light and matter from the early first steps to current applications in Quantum Information Processing and Quantum Simulators.


Many Body Physics


Coming soon. An exploration of Many Body Physics and diagrammatic perturbation theory with an inclination towards its Condensed Matter applications.


Quantum Physics at Work


Future course that will explore the general principles of quantum physics from a conceptual point of view. This will be a general education course for the honors college and other interested students. The emphasis will be placed on applications of quantum physics that are in use in common technologies.
